Just Finished

I just finished the Waving Lace socks and I love them. Too bad they are a gift. I made them with Shibui Socks colorway Kiwi. Needle size 1. I did modify toe. I used the star toe from the Embossed Leaves sock pattern.

Waving Lace socks

Waving Lace Socks

This was the first set of socks that really appealed to me from the book.
Needle: US 3 / 3.25 mm
Yarn: Schachenmayr nomotta Regia Silk Color
How much?: 2 skeins = 436.0 yards (398.7m)
Colorway: 0028 Apricot

Waving Lace Socks
I made these socks over a year ago for my mother. She never wore them because she said they were just too pretty to wear.

Then I moved to Florida in January. It got chilly one night (as chilly as S. Florida is going to get anyway) and the next thing I know, she's curled up on the couch with the socks on. She wore them everyday during her stay in Florida then took them back to GA. She snuck them back to Georgia and had the nerve to send me a picture of them on her feet.
Hm. . . I guess the ungrateful change their mind when the temperature drops. . .

I love my Mommy.
